    Hi! If your WordPress sites are experiencing huge spikes in traffic, it might be the result of a DDoS attack. We have a support article below detailing how to determine whether your server is under attack: What can be done if a cPanel account is compromised?

    I assumed a DDOS would be so severe that it would stop the server from processing real data? This seems to be more benign, someone hacking, someone spamming. I have had the server used to forward spam and stopped that. This is just someone or multiple people that have the server on their screw with list. What I don't like about this recent rash of mails is I can't seem to block them. I am getting a combination of .RU, gmail written in what I assume is Russian, and many other email addresses whose mail all essentially have the same content. I have blocked .RU but it seems these are spoofed mails, from me, to me, but the reply to is .ru. Is there a way to set the domain block or ??? to block based on the reply to? I have done a domain and country block but the mal still comes through. Frankly, something I have asked for over and over was a way to block mail that is from you, to you. I would never send myself a mail. If I want to forward something to myself, I send it from one email to a different email, never same to same. It would seem a simple piece of code could detect the from and to are common. Thanks very much!
